NextDraft's Dave Pell Recommends
“It has to feel like it's a creation, not just a collection. That keeps you from getting burned out, because if you're passionate about what you're making, then you wake up the next morning and you just need to push that publish button.” — Dave Pell ~ Meet the one-man operation behind the NextDraft newsletter in episode 05 of "The Art of Curation" podcast.

Recommended by Brandon & Collin of James Veloria, NYC's Coolest Vintage Store
If you’ve ever trekked to James Veloria in downtown Manhattan, you might think you took a wrong turn. Tucked away in a Chinatown mall, the shop is a glittery jewel box of clothes with as much personality as the proprietors themselves. In episode 04 of "The Art of Curation" podcast, we talk to founders Collin James Weber and Brandon Veloria Giordano about the art of curating vintage clothes as a business and for fun.
DJ Spooky Recommends
Paul Miller, aka DJ Spooky, is the ultimate creator: he’s a composer, a DJ, a multimedia artist, an editor, an author, and the curator of one of Flipboard’s most interesting magazines, “Semantic Infiltration.” He’s completely immersed in environmental and social issues and creates art to press those issues into the public consciousness. We talked to him for episode 03 of "The Art of Curation" podcast. Here's the show, plus other writers, thinkers and artists cited during the conversation.
